Beach Haven, New Jersey - Saltwater Fishing Report
Inshore ocean

Thanksgiving is arriving in Beach Haven, but many of the captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association are thinking of striped bass rather than turkey. While some of the captains have begun to prepare their boats and equipment for the winter storage, some are still putting some nice striped bass in their fish boxes.

Mate Marlyn Graham reports the "Starfish" had to work pretty hard recently to find some fish, but they ultimately managed to put a pair of nice fish in the box. A pair of keepers, one 32-inches and the other 34-inches made for a successful fishing day.

Captain Gary Dugan of the "Irish Jig" managed to put a pair of 32-inch stripers on board after losing another pair of fish before they could be netted. Captain Gary said that Sunday was tough fishing as he was unable to locate any bait.

As the fall moves on, the average size of the bass drops down, but there are still some large masses of fish to the north that will be passing through the Beach Haven area. If the weather cooperates, there should be decent striped bass fishing right on through the month of December.

The captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association want to go on the record as wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and the beginning of a great holiday season.
